Be ready that the work will be performed by NON-licensed electricians (the name of one of them is Barry). Robert said that everyone does like that. But license is given not to the company but to person so other persons cannot work with this license as they are not tested. We understood the risk but we wanted to be sure that at least Robert will be ready to take responsibility for the work if something would be done wrong by his NON-licensed electricians. Therefor we asked Robert to sign a contract (which specified the scope of work and their responsibility for this work) and to give us an affidavit to pass county inspection as this work was under permit. He promised to sign a contract and give us an affidavit after work would be done and we paid in full. His "promise" was in power only by the minute his electricians got the money for the work. I decided to share my experience with Full Circle Electrical LLC to let people know with what kind of service and people they will deal with. Here are the issues which we had to deal while the work was performed by his NON-licensed electricians: 1. They were in a rush. The most common words which we heard from Barry - "We are good to go", "We are good to go". But they spend much more time then they expected only because we didn't accept low quality work and they had to re-do it. 2. On the ceiling of the first floor the wire was secured to plywood not to the beam. This is hazardous risky for the installer of the floors on the second floor because he can be shocked by power while laying the floors. My husband told them that it should't be like that even though he is not a professional electrician. They had to re-do this. 3. We asked to put the outlet in a backsplash area on 44" hight. When we saw the outlet on the wall, we asked - Is it on correct hight? Barry said - "yes". We measured by tape and it was 52" hight from the floors. They had to re-do this. 3. The wire in a crawl space was run so close to hot-water pipe that it touched it. Again - we are not electricians but we understand, that it shouldn't be like that. But the wire has been already run so tightly that it took them much more time to re-do it then if they would everything right from the beginning. 4. They measured the center space in a ceiling hallway to install recessed lights. We asked - are you sure that you found the exact middle of the ceiling. Again we got "yes"-answer and "we are good to go". I think you can predict that the recessed lights were not in a center point. They had to re-do this. 5. Barry said that there is a limit for brakers in one main electrical panel up to 42 items. So if we want to have more - we should install sub-panel on a side. I searched the Internet and found that this limitation was in force till 2008 (Data Bulletin 1600DB0701 01/2008). Two thoughts: - Barry doesn't know this basic electrical stuff OR - Barry is more interested in installing subpanel for $1500 then to install new braker for $50. After work we gave the money to Barry hoping that Robert will keep his promise and will return the contracts and the affidavit that I sent him BEFORE the work started. And we said that we are not satisfied with the quality of their work but we can go forward and give them work in our remodeling kitchen if they will improve there work attitude. Barry became rude and boorish, he turned his back with words - "I got the money - I'm good to go". Today (the next day after work) I called Robert and asked him how can we meet to exchange the paper contracts and affidavit. Robert said that he wouldn't give me the contract and affidavit as "...you misbehaved with Barry". We? We misbehaved with poor Barry? What a hypocrisy and harboring! We were just deceived. These company and Robert personally didn't what to take any responsibility which is fixed in any paper. Barry even gave us a receipt WITHOUT company's name. I am glad that I shared my experience with people as such behavior shouldn't be rewarded. And in our hands the tool to eliminate such non-professional and unfair contractors.read more

I have found Danielo to be a very likable and honest businessman. The work he did for me was exceptional, and the price was very reasonable. I will surely call on him in the spring when there is more work to be done on the trees in my yard. Rev. Harry Peatt, Roxbury, CT.read more
